On 6-9 May, 2015, Enzo Maria Le Fevre Cervini, Director of Research and Cooperation at the Budapest Centre, participated in The Fifth State of the Union conference at the European University Institute.

The conference is a unique opportunity for high-level discussion about the state of the European Union, and featured remarkable speakers, including current and former ministers and heads of state from different EU countries. Le Fevre actively engaged in discussion with the speakers during a session on “Europe’s Role in Peacekeeping and Stabilization”.
The session was chaired by Jennifer Welsh, UN Special Adviser on RtoP, and examined how European states, both within the United Nations and the emerging architecture of the European Union, have contributed to peacekeeping and stabilization missions.
